Teams are about mutual support - some teams are very large, others really are one man bands. (How you can have a team of one is beyond me.)
Some teams are multi-national, drawing from all over the World with some common aim or focus, be it a wild animal (like the Raccoon Lovers), or the use of particular hardware (like the GPUUG).
For a few years I didn't want to join a team, but then someone I know started one, and I joined it almost as soon as it was formed. I've stayed because of the friendly rivalry, and banter....
Join Raccoon Lovers and enjoy being part of a slightly off the wall, but very supportive team.

Why to join? Bacause it is fun and a little competition between groups could motivate others to join.

We are based in Chile, and we are a small but healthy team. We are looking for new members, either in Chile or elsewere in the Universe...

We are TauZero

If you want yo join us, it would be an honour.

I guess teams is some sort of 'Gamefication'. This encourages contributors and gives them some sort of belonging.
